101 Things I Learned in Culinary School - Book Giveaway

Friday, May 21, 2010 Posted by Rita A


I find it fascinating to hear little tidbits of information from Chefs. I can imagine all the knowledge that passes in the kitchen among all the culinary classes. Louis Eguaras, a chef at the Le Cordon Bleu Program, is sharing his cooking insights in a lovely kitchen reference book 101 Things I Learned in Culinary School.

This handy book is a culinary insight to the basics of cooking, preparation and presentation of meals. As a home cook, having this knowledge makes me feel more like the inner chef I have always wanted to be. Chef Louis supplies the information in layman terms demonstrated with illustrations throughout the book. Simple points such as how to boil water to more complex ideas of the prime cuts of meat. I enjoyed learning tips from this gem of a book. 101 Things I Learned in Culinary School is a small compact size book that will easily fit in any kitchen for quick reference. The culinary tips are invaluable for any cook or chef.

You can purchase 101 Things I Learned in Culinary School from Amazon.

    I've always wanted to know the secret to pairing flavors. It's like my compass is broken. I like certain flavors separately but I have no clue how they'll work together.
